    seemingly some of the nations newspapers are trying to whip up a storm about getting the burka banned .

    i find a lot more other types of clothes more offensive than the burka .

    top of the list is the shell suit nothing says " chav " more than one of those ,how about banning those ?

    any others ?

    Does anyone know if Burkha covered women have an uncovered face in their Passports?..........What happens at a Passport control if the controller wants to see the face behind the mask?

    There's a line in a Libertines song that goes:

    "There are fewer more distressing sights than that of an Englishman in a baseball cap"



    So I'd ban all those Essex people wearing 'NY' baseball caps and I [heart] NY t-shirts.

    They can wear a hijab but not a burka. IRIS is meant to automate the photo checking process but otherwise I don't know? Presumably a woman in a burka might ask for a female passport control officer if further checks were needed? Which wouldn't be too much hassle -only about 5% of Muslim women wear burkas and presumably they're most likely to be on flights to and from the Middle East.

    People wearing pyjamas in public, My worst sight was seeing a middle aged pyjama clad woman shopping in Liverpool city centre, my strangest was a woman who got out of a car to go into a newsagent wearing just a bathrobe.

    I agree with Marker. I'm in a rare event of agreeness of the French President as well. Women in this country didn't fight for equality in this country to have women go round with their faces hidden.

    that might be the same middle aged woman i saw clad in pyjamas and slippers sat on a table in the notorious grafton club in central liverpool!! (it wasn't my idea to go there) or maybe another woman in pyjamas stood in the queue at the chippy in walton,liverpool or maybe one of the many girls walking around the streets of anfield in pyjamas after the match? i think it's a phenonenon!!

    Surely women fought for the right not to be told by men how to behave. It's a little patronising to assume that all Muslim women wear a burka because they're oppressed (and in fact hardly any do wear one). I'd be very surprised if some intimidated forum members encounter scary Muslim women very often (there are less than 500 Muslims in the whole of Suffolk for example).



    And in many ways they must be very convenient - who knows how many Muslims are still wearing their pyjamas under their burka?

    What's so unusual? Pyjamas are day wear, especially when it's hot. It's only some strange English people who started using them as night attire
